Reyna Maribel's story

Reyna is 32 years old. She is a single mother. She has a 12 year old son who studies at a public high school in the city of Guayaquil. Reyna had not had a a stable job ten years ago. She decided to start her own business since she has cooking skills. She opened a canteen in her home selling food. Currently, she works from Monday to Friday from six in the morning until nine in the evening. With this loan, she wants to purchase rice, oil, and to also repair the business location. Her dream for the future is to purchase a van in order to deliver food orders to faraway places. She also has a goal of converting her canteen into a well-known restaurant that sells typical foods from Ecuador.
